edX at Victoria

Victoria is the first university in New Zealand to partner with prestigious online course provider, edX.

A high quality global education

Founded in 2012 by United States universities Harvard and MIT, edX is a non-profit, open source technology platform that is run by universities, for universities.

EdX increases access to high quality education for anyone anywhere in the world, to enhance teaching and learning for partner universities—on-campus and online—and to advance teaching and learning through research.

Victoria’s partnership with edX is dramatically increasing the scale and reach of the University’s audience, and  enabling us to share our world class teaching and learning with people across the globe.  

Over the next three years, Victoria will deliver eight free MOOCs (massive open online courses) with edX, as well as a number of SPOCs (small private online courses), a micro-Master’s course and new forms of blended learning.
